Up for your special attention this week are Crimson Alliance and Fifa 12.

Fifa 12 needs no introduction, but Gold members can look forward to the demo, which will be available for download on September 13. It will be showcasing the new Player Impact Engine for the first time, and will also introduce EA Sports Football Club, a live online service to connect players to real world Fifa action.

It has also been announced that the full game will for the first time at launch feature the FIFA Ultimate Team feature. Players will be able to earn, buy sell and trade some of the greatest players in the world to build their ultimate dream team.


Crimson Alliance (not to be confused with iPad exclusive Crimson Steam Pirates) throws players into the World of Crimson, taking on one of three characters to battle against the Cult of the Soul Siren. The Assassin can bend time, the Wizard is master of the elements, and the Mercenary can sweep foes from their feet with whirlwind strikes.

Crimson Alliance will be available on a free trial basis from September 7, and players can purchase either one or three characters for 800 and 1200 Microsoft Points respectively.

Loves – sci-fi, gaming, movies, purple, photography, David Tennant, reading, doodling, writing.

    I’ve been sitting here rather impatiently waiting for XBL to update and have BloodRayne available. I know they don’t count the day until it’s midnight on the west coast of the US. But that was almost 2 hours ago.

    I want to play BloodRayne so badly.

    It’s almost 5am here, and I REFUSE to go to sleep until I get to play it. 😉

    And if my wallet gets any lighter it would float all the way into space.

      Rayne acquired! Also played for 30 minutes.
      It’s so beautiful.
      I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who likes BloodRayne, or just really pretty and awesome platformers.

      6:30am and I can finally sleep. Woo!

        Glad you got a hold of it before falling asleep! Must admit it looks pretty good, but my own wallet is somewhere around Mars right now as far as that imagery goes 😀

        • Cellophane Girl

          The only reason I had points to get BloodRayne is because my friend gave me a MSpoints card for my birthday last month and said “you know what to buy with this”. We are both very big fans of Rayne. So I’ve had it stuck to my wall with a thumbtack and a piece of paper that said “FOR RAYNE” on it.

          It’s a really good game so far. I love the graphics, and even though it’s hard to get a good score, it’s still a ton of fun to play.
          It’s definitely not a game to get if you just want easy achievements. But I don’t care about achievements, I just care about fun, and this game is fun.
